Justine Greening: teacher development key to school improvement

10th March 2017

The Education Secretary addresses ASCL about her ambitions for the teaching profession and how to support teachers in a school-led system.

Thank you Malcolm, and thank you for the excellent work you have done as interim General Secretary.

I’d like to congratulate Geoff on his election – I look forward to us working together over the coming years. And I want to thank ASCL for its constructive support since I became Secretary of State.

Many of you will have heard me say it’s the role I always wanted – a chance to have a positive impact on the education system that made me.

To do that, I recognise clearly how vital it is that I really engage with and listen to you, and I am struck by how much we are trying to achieve the same thing.”
